Earth Day 2011 Redux
2 bedrooms - 2.5 bathrooms - garage
- rooftop living - pet ready - patio - swimming/fishing hole
~~~ Now with much less CC! ~~~
"This earth-sheltered house makes no sacrifice of good planning and excellent, all 'round livability."
I hope you have simmies who will enjoy living here!
The original upload is still available - with ALL it's CC - Eco-Modern: A Single Story Home On 3 Terraced Levels.
This house is sparsely furnished, and lightly decorated. All appliances, plumbing and lighting are included. The stove has a smoke alarm. The front door is burglar alarmed. The telephone is in the living area.
This is a clean copy of this house/lot; no sim has ever lived here. The package has been cleaned with Mootilda's Clean Installer.
There is parking for two vehicles; one in the garage, and one on the driveway.
This is a pet-friendly build. No pet items are included - but there is plenty of space to add them, both tubs are accessible for dog washing.
Possibly used but NOT included - so, you may need to GO get it:
--- I use the Lifestyle Build Bundle wallpapers/floors ALL the time. (If you followed that link, it's the second link in the top post - extracted from Lifestyle Stories by Argon @ MATY) This 'bundle' lives back in my Bins folder so it doesn't have the CC star. If you ever enter one of my builds and find it has blank/unpapered walls/floors, it is because I used ones from this bundle and forgot to mention it. So, either substitute the wall/floor of your choice, or go get this bundle and re-install the lot (from your lot bin.)
You will also need to get:
--- The blue striped wallpaper used in the kid's bedroom is from my Maxis-Matching Walls: UNTRIMMED set.
--- Unlevel Wall - #90 by Numenor @ MTS2
Some people weren't sure how to install this wall... Click the info button below to see how I did it
If you don't already have it, go get and install the Scriptorium by Numenor - it makes it super easy to install Modular Stairs, Fireplaces, Custom Walls, Lights/lamp mods (You can read about the what/why/how of it on his post) To sum up - all these items use scripts to work properly in the game - and that means they have an extra .txt file along with the regular .package file. And, you don't just dump it all into your Downloads folder. Once you install the Scriptorium, it will install all the other stuff for you.
Then - go get 90_UnleveledWall also by Numenor. (This wall is amazing!) Numenor cautions on his post that some people have experienced problems with this wall; but, I've used it since he first released it in 2006, and I have NEVER had a problem with it - I've used it through various EP/SP disc installs on XP, Vista, 7, 8, and now on Windows 10 with UC.
Unpack the file and find two items:
In your DL folder, find the Scriptorium shortcut labeled "Scriptorium_Walls-Fences-Arches" and drop the .txt file into it.
(If you open the shortcut, you'll see it's path goes to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Double Deluxe\Base\TSData\Res\Catalog\Scripts\Scriptorium_Walls-Fences-Arches - if you have the UC)
Numenor advises that you put BOTH the .txt and the .package in the shortcut folder. However, my 90_UnleveledWall.package file is in my documents/Downloads/zHacks folder - always has been, and, like I said, I've never had a problem with it.
Custom Content Included
- NowYouSeeMeNowYouDont (Transp floor) by Frillen @ MTS2
- WoodenStairs-OpenUnderneath by Reyn @ MTS2 - these do need a script file so follow the link and make sure you install them properly!
- RetainingWall Set by tBudgett @ MTS2
- CS Rocks and 1 plant: Originally from Castaway Stories, fixed by meetme2theriver @ livejournal - I used the following:
LeaningVolcanicLawnOrn/OutdoorRock-Med1 - MASTER
Lot Size: 4X4
Lot Price (furnished): $87,201
Standard mods I use that are not necessary, nor included - but were probably used whilst building/photo-ing/prepping this house for upload...
I use Deastrumquodvicis' Roof Shader for brighter roofs
And, HW/Honeywell's A Little Greyer: Roof Trim Defaults
Maranatah's White Wall Top texture replacement
Moo's Turn On/Off Lights
Menaceman's Lunatech Lighting Fix
Nopke's Go Under Spiral Stairs mod for proper spiral stair usage
Gunmod's Radience Lighting System, which is installed with the Scriptorium (which is necessary for installing CC stairs.)
HugeLunatic's Sweet Down Low Tweaked + for the ability to shift things up/down on a wall without darkening the item!
And, I highly recommend using gummilutt's Invisible Medicine Cabinet to add features to any mirror.
And, of course, everyone needs Numenor's CEP and SEP!
NOTE: Sweet Down Low Tweaked + sometimes causes pictures, curtains, shelves, and ceiling lights to 'jump' out of place when you first install a lot. You can click the item to put it back in place. The 'jumping' is a side-effect of the mod. It won't affect your game at all (other than the inconvenience of things being initially out of place *sigh*)
Custom Content Included:
Build content only: only Walls, floors, terrain paint, fences, stairs, windows, doors, etc.
Fully Furnished: Lot is completely decked out in furnishings

Title: Open Wooden Stairs (by Reyn)
Description: Bring a new dynamic into your Sims' home with these adaptable wooden stairs.
Title: Spidery Palm
Description: Here we have a fascinating example of the local flora, the spidery palm. According to local experts it's a palm that wishes it were a spider. Is it the potential bridge to greater understanding and cooperation between the plant and insect kingdoms, or just a pretentious shrub with an identity crisis?

Title: Serene Volcanic Lawn Ornamentation
Description: What better way to get the feel of the tropics than with natural volcanic ejecta from the island's fiery volcano? These rocks may be less exciting than the volcano itself, but they are certainly safer to look at. This one imagines that it's a turtle. It's nearly as quiet as one, anyway.
Title: Classic Rock
Description: Tired of rocks always trying to stand out and be different? Frustrated that you can't keep up with the latest rock fashion? Then try the Classic Rock, and remember back to the days when a rock could just be a rock and that was okay.
Title: Wistful Volcanic Lawn Ornamentation
Description: What better way to get the feel of the tropics than with natural volcanic ejecta from the island's fiery volcano? These rocks may be less exciting than the volcano itself, but they are certainly safer to look at. This one dreams what it's like to vacation someplace cold.
Title: Leaning Volcanic Lawn Ornamentation
Description: What better way to get the feel of the tropics than with natural volcanic ejecta from the island's fiery volcano? These rocks may be less exciting than the volcano itself, but they are certainly safer to look at. This one remembers resting atop the rim of the crater, looking down over all the ants as if they were... well, ants.
Title: "Now You See Me, Now You Don't"
Description: Invisible flooring
